This blog contains photos, mainly taken during diving around Perth and other parts of Western Australia, with occasional other locations thrown in. This header photograph was taken during a trip to Sipadan Island off the coast of Borneo. It shows a Grey Reef Shark disappearing into the gloom, which drops to around 600 metres deep - I was at around 30 metres!!

These Samson Fish were circling the wreck of the Key Biscayne oil rig near Lancelin, 100km north of Perth. This shot was taken at the end of the second dive and we were on top of the up-turned hull of the rig at 26 metres deep and looking down towards the bottom. The bottom is at 42 metres and is littered with wreckage and the 100 metre long legs of the rig. "Sambo's" are quite a large and powerful fish, around a metre long, and are fun to catch but are poor eating.
